Mississippi University for Women president, Dr. Claudia Limbert, says she and Mississippi State University officials will explore ways to consolidate operations.

However, Limbert told the Columbus Commercial Dispatch that the move "is not a merger" but an effort by the state College Board to address funding cuts.

The College Board met with presidents Thursday in Jackson.

Limbert said MUW and MSU will name coordinators to review the two schools' operations, budgets and programs.

Limbert says there's no plan to close MUW and the Columbus-based school will remain a separate institution.
